FIXED!

(found a v3.6 firefox at home here w/ ubuntu...
indeed, as i guessed, it seems to trip up on html5 [video] tag
so by default, if we detect you have a firefox v3.6 browser,
we'll automatically prefer you into "flash" option.
patrons are free to override back to html5 if they find their
firefox v3.6 can handle it, though, too).

you may need to load a page and then reload it (we use a small cookie, "avpref=flash" to set to indicate to try flash first, then try html5 second (instead of the default of try html5 first; flash second)

I've tested the group of pages linked previously as not loading properly in Firefox, and all but one of them is now loading successfully. On this page the media player is still not loading:

. . .but if I click the link "I prefer flash (when possible)" then the media player does indeed load.

The media player for the "The Bat" video is loading fine in Firefox now, but it still taking about 70 seconds to load in Safari 4.1.3:

Other than these two little stragglers, I'd say my issues are mostly resolved now. Thank you Tracey!

ok, great!

at that point, it sounds like the normal/occasional issues that we have from time-to-time. sometimes our datanodes (we have two servers per media file) get a bit overloaded and so can our network (get saturated) at times.

we do our best to clear problems and keep the servers happy, but as I can't reproduce the "Bat" issues, i'm hoping it's just a random blip, etc...

thanks for working with us and giving us so much valuable feedback and information!!
